“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Drink the Wild Air winter youth writing retreat is a great time to reconnect with the WordsWorth community, make new friends, and, most importantly, write! Time will be spent outdoors!
Drink the Wild Air 2022
But, don’t just take our word for it on how amazing the camps are. Here are some comments from past participants:
I return because I want to continue to learn and grow in my writing skills, and the instructors are so kind it has become a home away from home.”
It is fun & awesome. We do really exciting stuff & it is super happy & stuff. Oh, & it’s, like, writing, so that’s coolness right there.”
I return because everyone here wants to write, they want to play Dungeons & Dragons; they watch every nerdy show under the sun. When people sign up for a class they want to learn about developing a character or how to write a screen play.”
I have so much fun here and so many great friends; everybody is so supportive and it inspires me to continue my writing.”
This is an environment where I’m not afraid to be myself.”
